Hmmm... isn't it possible to compost your tea bags?

Just curious. :-)

Great job on this project! I can't wait to see how it turns out!

I'm pretty sure that tea bag was this weird hoyty toity one that I got that was made out of some odd mesh and I didn't want to chance composting it. I wrote about it the day i threw it in the basement. Come to think of it, I could throw it in their and see what happens but at this point don't want to search for it. I did drop the tea leaves in the composter though and all others head there. The worms love them.

As for how it turns out, you and me both.
